Activity With this activity you will analyze a TED talk - First, select a "talk" (aka presentation or speech) that interests you from the 1,100 TED Talks (ranging in length from 3 to 18 minutes). FYI: TED Talks was selected because each speech video should have enough depth or substance, and video quality to allow close viewing and analysis. Second, review chapters 10, 11 and 12 of your text. Third, listen to the presentation several times, looking deeply at how the individual uses non- verbal communication, composes sentences, and organizes thoughts, etc. Pay particular attention to the following areas: 1. Purpose: General and specific purpose (and implied if different from stated purpose) 2. Non-verbal delivery 1. Movement in Your Speech 2. Visual Aids 3. Strategies for Success 1. Pathos: tone, emphasis, engagement 2. Logos: clarity, conciseness, arrangement 3. Ethos: credibility, expectation, reference 4. Style 1. Appeals (to emotions, logic, ethos) 2. Figurative language (similes, metaphors, symbols, imagery) 3. Use of language, word choices (diction) 4. Passive or active voice 5. Simple or complex sentences; short or long sentences 5. Oral strategies and tactics 1. Music 2. Volume 3. Speech patterns (articulation, intonation, emphasis)
4. Other sound effects Four, report on all 5 of the areas above, and respond to the postings of at least 2 of your colleagues. Be sure to include a hyperlink so we can view the presentation you opted to share with us. Ted Talks, focused on innovation, stimulation and outline, are intended to be gathering of people drawing in and to a great degree provocative. In Jamie Oliver's discussion "Instruct each kid about nourishment," he draws in the gathering of people utilizing a few strategies and causes them to ponder his point.
